If the stain is persistent, it may take a stronger cleaning product. Hydrogen peroxide is effective in removing stains, but can also bleach some products. There are a wide variety of silks, and each may respond differently to the cleaning methods listed. These stain removal methods are only advised for washable silks. Always test a small hidden area first, to ensure that there are no damaging effects to the texture, colour or sheen of the silk. Once the test area goes well, it is safe to work on the stained area.
What You Will Need
- Hydrogen peroxide 3%
- Soft cloths
- Mix one part peroxide with 10 parts water.
- Use a soft cloth to blot the mixture onto the stain.
- Once the stain is removed, rinse and launder as usual.
- Until you are sure the stain is removed, allow the piece to air dry. Either hang it up or lay it flat on a dry towel. This is because if you dry it with heat you could set the stain permanently
